Re-Set Pay-Off!

Wednesday, January 15, 2014

All righty...last week was my first weigh-in so THIS is my first week of seeing the pay-off: SEVEN POUNDS!

Here are some of the numbers I'm seeing on the nutrition tracker:

Daily calories totaling around 1400-1500

Daily carbs totaling around 130-150

Daily protein totaling around 80-100

What confidence boost to see that I really, truly *KNOW* what my body needs and can take control so effectively!

Before going to sleep or when I wake up in the morning feeling that little gnarly twinge of hunger in my belly now brings a smile to my face: my friend is letting me know I'm on the right track! YES!

Let's keep doing all we can to take charge and fill our lives with SPARK! :-)

    That's DAMNED impressive!!! Man, you've got it GOIN'! I'm curious about your fiber and fat totals as well, if you don't mind sharing. Your trackers don't register via the SparkPage. Difficult program -- no sugar or grains, first meal at noon -- and you're doing it with pizzazz!

I have the same problem that ONEKIDSMOM described on your "Reframing Hunger" blog. And for me her approach feels sound. Third day tracking food and first day that I believe I'll hit the sack having stayed within caloric range. I'm takin' it slow -- you're jammin' it!

The eternal challenge!

    WOW!! That is a fantastic result, yay for you!!

Hunger is certainly an effective message that we're doing the right thing: we're supposed to be hungry for the next meal, no cause for panic at all.

    I love your comment about hunger. I was sitting in a beautiful concert the other night and sensing that I would have enjoyed it even more if I had more internal spaciousness to let the music vibrate in me. That is -- If I'd eaten less dinner, I would have enjoyed the concert even more.

So glad you are making such beautiful progress!

    Great job! I too am making some progress. I don't see it on the scale, but I'm eating many more vegetables and fruits and I feel confident about it.

    There's nothing worse than waking up and you're still stuffed from last night.
